ARIZONA [2-1] v. UTAH [3-0]
Utah gets a tougher test this weekend when they leave the state of Utah to take on Arizona. Arizona hasn’t looked great this year though and Utah is the favorite headed into this evenings game.
Brian J. Moore: Utah
Joe Londergan: Utah
Leo Castaneda: Utah
Marcus Russell: Utah
Robert Ingle: Utah
Travis Johannes: Utah

CAL [3-0] v. USC [3-0]
No one thought Cal would be undefeated at this point going into their showdown with USC. With a tough non-conference schedule featuring North Carolina and Ole Miss many expected Cal to struggle and spend the year rebuilding. USC on the other-hand just escaped with a victory over Texas last weekend. USC is the heavy favorite but don’t be surprised if Cal continues to surprise people.
Brian J. Moore: USC
Joe Londergan: USC
Leo Castaneda: USC
Marcus Russell: USC
Robert Ingle: USC
Travis Johannes: USC

WASHINGTON STATE [3-0] v. NEVADA [0-3]
Washington State just dominated the Beavers and now they get the winless Nevada squad at home. Expect Luke Falk to put on another show for their home fans.
Brian J. Moore: Washington State
Joe Londergan: Washington State
Leo Castaneda: Washington State
Marcus Russell: Washington State
Robert Ingle: Washington State
Travis Johannes: Washington State
Saturday, September 23rd (7:00 PM PT, FS1)
COLORADO [3-0] v. WASHINGTON [3-0]
The Huskies head to Boulder Colorado and will see how they look against a good Buffs team. Washington is favored and undefeated, but they haven’t exactly looked unbeatable in their first three games.
Brian J. Moore: Washington
Joe Londergan: Washington
Leo Castaneda: Colorado
Marcus Russell: Washington
Robert Ingle: Washington
Travis Johannes: Washington
Saturday, September 23rd (7:00 PM PT, Pac-12 Network)
ARIZONA STATE [1-2] v. OREGON [3-0]
This Arizona State squad has looked bad this season and are considered huge home underdogs against the Ducks this weekend. Let’s just say the staff at BTD are Sun Devil fans this week.
Brian J. Moore: Arizona State
Joe Londergan: Oregon
Leo Castaneda: Oregon
Marcus Russell: Oregon
Robert Ingle: Oregon
Travis Johannes: Oregon
Saturday, September 23rd (7:30 PM PT, ESPN)
STANFORD [1-2] v. UCLA [2-1]
This might be the trickiest Pac-12 game to pick. Stanford looked bad last weekend in losing to SDSU; but they are playing at home and UCLA is coming off an upset loss of their own. I think we’ll find out a lot more about these teams on Saturday.
